Former No. 1 Dinara Safina will officially retire when she visits Madrid next week to present the women's trophy, reports L'Equipe.

Safina reached the top spot in 2009 but then began to experience back injuries and has not played since Madrid in 2011. The Russian, who is the younger sister of two-time Grand Slam champion Marat Safin, is now attending university at Moscow.
